Winter Festival 2011

Winter Festival is probably the only time to ice skate outside Brisbane City Hall. Unfortunately, ice skating is never one of my favourites and i am just happy to be outside photographing.

While thinking the ordinary skating photos are too common, i notice the round light from the festival actually made the scratch on the ice quite interesting. Under exposed a couple of photo with increased contrast and a bit of processing made the photos below.

Another attraction of the Winter Festival is the ice skating show. A perfect chance to practice. Trying not to use a very fast shutter with everything frozen, and keeping the shutter speed low with some blurred motion but a face that’s sharp enough is totally not easy. Didn’t try any pan shot though is a pity. By the time i was about to do pan shoot the show had already ended…
